Re: James ACKLES / 1870 Fed Census MO
Well I guess Birth and death records don't lie, or do they? Stephen William is Stephen D.Ackles. William Stephen doesn't live it is James Ackles b. 1841 in MO and d: in 1909 in LaGrande, Union Co. Oregon. I have a problem with that one. The reason? Because my 2nd great grandfather(by my own grandfather's mouth) told the family that his grandfather died in their home here in Spokane, Spokane Co. WA, in 1909. He was then supposed to of been shipped to the Indian Reservation and buried there. However, I can't find him there either. And maybe it is the right James Ackles that is buried in the Ackles cemetery in LaGrande Oregon. I only know that I have a death certificate that says that James Ackles who was born in 1843 in MO. Died of Stomach Cancer in Baker City Oregon, June 6, 1909. He was hired by the Indian Breaurer to teach the children to read and write. Now, tell me how is a man that is not able to read and write himself supposed to do that? Got the wrong James some where don't you think?
I don't have information on Tabitha Elizabeth(Eliza)Allega Street. Don't have a birth or a death date either. Unfortunately but true.
This James relates back to the James born in 1810-1811 of Ohio. Does anyone know who this James married? Was it Elizabeth Rader(Roder)? If so I think that i have that right. But I have no information on her at all or when he died.
If someone can fill me in that would be really nice.
Thanks in advance,
